QA Automation Developer

QA Automation Developer

We're seeking a QA Automation Developer to join our web application team in Dresher, PA. Our challenge is to provide custom software as KBRA continues to grow and expand its client base in the financial services industry. We support various web applications for different departments across the company as well as external, public-facing, applications.

About the Team

Our development team believes that code is craft, writing software is a creative endeavour, and that the work we do is part of what makes our organization successful. We believe that small, empowered teams can do amazing things. We also believe in always picking the right tool for the job instead of using something "because that's what we've always done."

Some of our current tools:

  • PHP, C# and JavaScript (jQuery, Angular & React)
  • TestCafe, Selenium, PHPUnit, Behat, Jasmine, Jest, Karma and MSTest
  • Atlassian JIRA, Confluence & BitBucket
  • Jenkins

About the Job

You ll work with a team of application developers to minimize the risk presented by bugs that may be introduced with a release. You ll document bugs and escalate them to other developers as necessary. You'll design, develop and execute automated test plans so that these checks can be integrated into our build and release tools. You will be expected to explore new tools and QA processes. You will also be expected to make recommendations on how our current processes can be improved as this area of our develop team continues to mature.

About You

You can work as part of a cross-functional team to ensure quality through testing and automation. You're a developer who can deliver reliable code that other people -- and your future self -- will find easy to read and modify.

In order to be successful in this role, you must have extensive experience with:

  • Browser based testing using a JavaScript testing framework.
  • Experience testing front-end applications which utilize Angular or React.
  • HTML, CSS, and one or more programming languages (JavaScript, Python, PHP, C#, etc.).
  • Working as a member of an Agile development team (as opposed to as part of a separate QA department).

Additionally, experience with the following is preferred but not required:

  • Browser based testing with Selenium WebDriver for all major browsers (e. g. IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari).
  • A basic understanding of continuous integration/deployment and how testing fits into those processes.
  • Mobile testing experience, including frameworks like Calabash or Appium (a plus but not required).

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
